Stopped in for a couple of drinks with my wife and son and daughter-in-law. The drinks were pretty generic but the biggest problem was the musty smell of the place. I would never eat there.

Went for my birthday, been a few years since we came here. Service is still great, the people are different but the attitude of making the visit the best is still there. We started with a special, crab dip appetizer. It came with plenty of Pita and the dip was full of crab meat and very rich as it should... More

Have visited this restaurant frequently and the food never disappoints. Prices are reasonable for the quality and variety of food served. Glad to see the owners are beginning to give the decor an update. This will help match the ambiance to the great menu. I would encourage giving this restaurant a try.

After a beautiful drive through the countryside of Maryland from Northern Va. we arrived and were promptly seated at our reservation time on the Patio.

We have eaten at The Monocacy Crossing several times over the years for special occasions and are never disappointed. The restaurant is in an older quaint building, and the food is about as good as it gets in Frederick, Maryland. I always get the Filet Mignon topped with Garlic Cream with Shallot Mashed Potatoes. It's not cheap, $30 to be... More

A number of years ago after playing at Whiskey Creek Golf Course, we asked for a recommendation for a nearby restaurant. The pro shop recommended Monocacy Crossing. You don't usually find really good restaurants with a gravel parking lot, but we went in anyway, and got a huge surprise. It's still every bit as good as it was then and... More

On advice from friends and recommendations from Trip Advisor we decided to have a late lunch to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary at Monocacy Crossing. The lunch menu is a subset of the dinner menu and very varied American fare. In addition for lunch they had specialty sandwiches. I opted for the Seared Tuna Salad and my wife selected the pork...

From the moment we walked in to Monocacy Crossing, we were greeted with smiles and treated well. Our server, Katie, made a point of giving us a quiet table in the corner. She helped me select food that would accommodate my allergy. The wine list was extensive, but carried very few American wines. We both had a fabulous citrus dressed... More

Service was terrible. The server was friendly, but wasn't meant to be a server. Seemed they were never trained, just didn't get what they were supposed to be doing. The rest of the staff was not very friendly. The food was good but not as good as it used to be, and the patio was great. Thank goodness for the... More
